Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Kivio doesn't seem to have the stencils that visio has, you can create your own, but looks like a mission. I emailed the guy who was part of the development team and he had this to say:
Ok I've never used visio (only poked around in it a bit) so I don't know all requirements, but for ordinary stencils you need to create a sml file for it describing how it looks. For examples look at the other stencils ($KDEDIR/share/apps/kivio/stencils). Also I'll attach a describing the format but it isn't correct in all places so you might run into things that doesn't
The plan is to move to the OASIS open office format which is shared with at least OpenOffice.org. That move will mean better documentation and being able to use a drawing app to create the stencils.
So I think I'm going to wait till the move is complete, seems easier!
